Integrity Driven Solutions, Inc. - Lansing, MI —Liaison

November 2012 to November 2017


IDS is a liaison representation company 5900 Main St Orono, Ontario, Canada.

I provided customer liaison support to T1 and T2 suppliers in the automotive industry

General Motors was my primary customer, I also worked with Ford, Chrysler and other auto companies spread out in about a 200 mile radius. I had no direct supervision. I reported back to IDS only if I needed additional help to meet customer needs and to report my hours.

On a typical day, I would be responsible for the communication between GM and a few of their suppliers. If there was an incident, I would perform an investigation into the cause and extent of the problem. Determine if the company I represented caused or contributed to it and, if needed, hire a crew to make repairs and limit the extent of the manufacturing disruption.

Commercial and residential property Owner/Landlord

For 25 years my wife and I owned rental homes and a commercial building. We collected the rent, performed the maintenance and filled vacancies ourselves. From clogged toilets to leaking roofs, we did it all. I have a fair knowledge of plumbing, electrical and other common repairs or replacements. I have cleaned, painted and made other miscellaneous repairs to refurbish apartments for new move-ins.

Computer and internet

I have more than basic experience with computers, Internet and email. I have made and updated websites back in the day when we did it by hand in HTML and CSS.
